ToxFile covers the toxicological, pharmacological, biochemical, and physiological effects of drugs and other chemicals: adverse drug reactions, chemically induced diseases, carcinogenesis, mutagenesis, teratogenesis, environmental pollution, waste disposal, radiation, and food contamination.
ToxFile includes toxicology records derived from MEDLINE (Dialog Files 154/155). These are journal citations related to toxicology, also called TOXBIB (or TOXLINE Core) records from the National Library of Medicine (NLM).
ToxFile also includes citations referred to as TOXNET (or TOXLINE Special) records from the following organizations and data repositories:
ANEUPL, EMIC, EPIDEM, ETIC, FEDRIP, HAPAB, HMTC, PESTAB, PPBIB, and RISKLINE are archival subfiles (do not update). CIS, CRISP, DART, FEDRIP, NTIS, and TSCATS may update on an occasional or irregular basis. The combination of the toxicology journal citations extracted from MEDLINE and the additional data from these other sources greatly facilitates searching this subject area.

|/AB||BACKGROUND: Inhalation of environmental endotoxin is important in the|
|pathogenesis of asthma and other environmental airway diseases. Inhaled|
|airway challenge using lipopolysaccharide in humans has been performed for|
|over 20 years to assess the airway response to endotoxin. However, there|
|are no published data on the short-term safety of endotoxin inhalation|
|protocols. OBJECTIVE: To characterize the safety and tolerability of|
|incremental inhaled lipopolysaccharide challenge in humans. PATIENTS AND|
|METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of data obtained from 119|
|subjects who underwent inhaled challenge with up to 41.5 mug of|
|lipopolysaccharide. We measured pulmonary function, temperature, mean|
|arterial pressure, heart rate, and systemic symptoms for 3 h after|
|challenge. RESULTS: Fever occurred in 30% of subjects and was associated|
|with a higher cumulative dose of lipopolysaccharide. Reduced mean arterial|
|pressure occurred in 21% of subjects and was dose-related. There was no|
|association between fever or decreased mean arterial pressure and airway|
|responsiveness to inhaled lipopolysaccharide. Common symptoms reported by|
|subjects included: chills (64%), malaise (56%), cough (56%), chest|
|tightness (49%), headache (43%), and myalgias (27%). None of the subjects|
|experienced delayed discharge or a serious adverse event. CONCLUSIONS:|
|Inhaled lipopolysaccharide causes dose-related systemic responses that|
|include fever, reduced blood pressure, and constitutional symptoms that are|
|not associated with the airway response to inhaled lipopolysaccharide.|
|Systemic responses to inhaled lipopolysaccharide should be expected and|
|subjects undergoing inhaled lipopolysaccharide challenge in the research|
|setting should be carefully monitored for non-pulmonary adverse events for|
|several hours after challenge.|

|/AB||Iron is an essential nutrient for virtually every organism, yet it can|
|also be a potent cellular toxin. Dysregulated iron metabolism and iron|
|overload are features of a growing number of human diseases. Some genes|
|involved in cellular iron uptake and export have been identified, yet very|
|little is known about inter- and intracellular iron transport,|
|intracellular iron utilization, and the regulation of these processes. A|
|combination of genetic, biochemical, and cell biological approaches is|
|needed to understand iron metabolism and the role of iron in human disease.|
|These approaches can be combined in the simple eukaryote, Saccharomyces|
|cerevisiae. Studies of metal metabolism in budding yeast have yielded|
|important insights into iron, copper, and zinc metabolism in both humans|
|and pathogenic microorganisms. Genetic studies of iron metabolism in a|
|simple eukaryote will allow us to discover new genes involved in iron|
|homeostasis as well as to determine the cellular response to iron overload|
|and iron deprivation. We have used cDNA microarrays representing the entire|
|yeast genome to identify genes that are regulated according to the|
|availability of iron and the activity of Aft1p, the major iron-dependent|
|transcription factor. Using available genome and protein databases, we have|
|grouped these newly identified genes into families and have begun their|
|functional evaluation. We have identified and genetically characterized a|
|novel system of eukaryotic iron uptake. Four homologous genes regulated as|
|part of the Aft1-regulon (ARN1-4) were found to facilitate the transport of|
|siderophores. We have determined that, in the absence of transport|
|substrate, Arn1p is sorted directly from the Golgi to the late|
|endosome/pre-vacuolar compartment and does not cycle to the plasma|
|Very little is known about heme transport in eukaryotes and no|
|fungal heme transporters have been identified. We have identified a gene|
|from C. albicans that, when overexpressed in S. cerevisiae, facilitates the|
|uptake of heme. This gene, tentatively termed HUF1 for heme utilization|
|factor 1, is part of a fungal gene family with three homologues in C.|
|albicans and, surprisingly, three orthologues in S. cerevisiae. These genes|
|have ten predicted transmembrane domains and may function as transporters.|
|Members of this family of genes serve an essential function in yeast, as|
|deletion of two members of this family is lethal in S. cerevisiae. We have|
|constructed a double deletion strain in S. cerevisiae that expresses Huf1p|
|from a regulatable promoter, and we are phenotypically characterizing this|
|strain. Localization studies with an epitope-tagged Huf1p and a screen for|
|genes that rescue the growth defects of the double deletion mutant are|
